On the week of April 20, Centennial celebrated their seniors on the boys’ lacrosse and baseball teams.

The Eagles highlighted baseball’s four seniors: Sean Cutick, Caleb McClatchey, Liam Wood, and Zack Steen. 

Despite the boys’ season being cut short, they are all grateful for the time they had with the team over the past four years. The senior parents brought them together one last time to have a small and safe celebration on the baseball field. 

Steen will continue his baseball career in college as he has committed to play Varsity baseball at Bloomsburg University. 

“The baseball team meant quite a bit to me,” said Steen. “We all got along well and we just had fun playing baseball together.” 

Along with the baseball team, Centennial honored the 13 seniors on the boys’ lacrosse team: Darian Avery, Connor Carpenter, Jackson Decarlo, Zach Grable, Chris Guerra, Evan Keller, David Kim, Shawn Kruhm, Jake Rower, Ty Sams, Kieran Senisi, Liam Sullivan, and Zeyu Zhong. Each senior received a decorated sign which included their name and number. 

Sams and Senisi will both be taking their talent to college as they both committed to play lacrosse for their college Varsity team. Sams will be attending Holy Cross this fall and Senisi will be attending St. Mary’s. 

“It was devastating to have the last chance to play on that field stripped away without our control,” said Sams. “The lacrosse team was one of my favorite memories from high school, if not my favorite.”

Centennial’s Allied Bowling team had a productive winter, finishing the season with a 6-3 record. Averaging 96.5 points per game, the Eagles came out of every match with high spirits.

Although there were a few close games, the Eagles kept a positive mindset. Against Glenelg, they won by 3.3 early in the season, but only fell short half a point three weeks later. 

They battled Mount Hebron twice, losing to them by less than 1 during week two, but finishing strong and beating them by 2.3 to close out the season. 

After a successful season, Centennial’s Allied Bowling team finishes with a sense of friendship and Eagle Pride.

On Thursday, December 12, Centennial’s school-wide Poetry Out Loud competition was held in the auditorium.  

Twelve winners from the classroom-level competitions joined each other on the stage to each recite two poems from the Poetry Out Loud website database. Apoorva Ajith, Sophie Bombick, Bethany Cho, Larry Du, Susan Kuhn, Yuri Lee, Aya Mohammed, Mira Palakodety, Mats Te Plate, Taimur Raja, Gray Ren, and Leah Roddy were the school-wide competitors.

This year, the theme of the competition was Around the World. Between recitations, four emcees from the National English Honor Society, each dressed in different cultural attire, gave small anecdotes about poetry in cultures across the globe. This aspect gave listeners a chance to learn about the rich history behind many of the poems recited.

Ajith won first place, with Kuhn scoring second and Palakodety in third.

Ajith will advance with three poems to the Region One competition, held on February 1, 2020 at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.

Powder puff, an annual football game with junior and senior girls, was held during the pep rally this year rather than after school. Just as in the years before, the pep rally helped build excitement towards the homecoming game and dance.

Centennial students and staff took a break from their usual routine Thursday morning to support the Law Enforcement Torch Run, a public awareness and fundraising group which supports the Special Olympics.

As students clapped and cheered, law enforcement, along with some Special Olympics athletes, ran down Centennial Lane carrying the Flame of Hope, the Special Olympics torch.

In preparation for the Special Olympics Maryland Summer Games, the torch has been passed between Maryland counties. The games are set to begin this Friday at Towson University.

Each year, 97,000 law enforcement officers participate in the Law Enforcement Torch Run, carrying the Flame of Hope into local, state, national, and world competitions.
